MERCEDES-BENZ 220 S HeckFlosse (W111)

Fuel Type
Gear Box


The W111 saloon was produced from 1959 to 1968. It was nicknamed the "Heckflosse" (German for "tail fin") because of its pointed rear wings, which were influenced by the American style and served as a visual aid for parking. It was powered by a 2.2-litre six-cylinder engine with a carburettor or fuel injection, and later by a 2.3-litre engine with a carburettor. It was spacious, comfortable, extremely robust and very powerful for its time. Its long bonnet gave it an air of sophistication, and its chrome trims gave it an air of pride.

A typical example of the make, this car is now much sought after as there are very few examples left in good condition. The Germans are particularly fond of them, and many French cars have been exported to Germany.

The Mercedes Heckflosse underwent several evolutions, from the W110 to the W112, via the W111 with its famous tail fins, before gradually being replaced by the W108 and W109.

The model on offer is a 220 S delivered new in France in 1965. It has had two owners and is in pristine original condition.
The underbody is immaculate and has never been restored, which is rare for this type of car. This car also has a full service history. It has just undergone a major overhaul, costing around €10,000, to keep it in perfect overall condition. The suspension, exhaust, clutch, anti-vibration mounts and brackets are all new. It is in perfect working order and will take you back fifty years when you get behind the wheel.
It is also covered by a 12-month warranty.
